Download Fact Sheet

Investment Strategy:

KBA is benchmarked to the MSCI China A Index which captures large and mid-cap representation across China securities listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen exchanges (A-shares). Over the coming years, MSCI will complete the incremental inclusion of China A-shares into their Global Standard Indexes, including the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, which may potentially benefit the securities KBA holds today. The MSCI China A Index is designed for global investors accessing the A-share market using the Stock Connect framework and is calculated using China A Stock Connect listings based on the offshore RMB exchange rate (CNH).

KBA features:

  • Access to the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges - historically unavailable to U.S. investors - via Stock Connect Programs.
  • KBA's benchmark, The MSCI China A Index, reflects a 20% inclusion factor for China A large-cap, mid-cap, and eligible ChiNext shares within the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
  • With over $1.8 trillion1 benchmarked to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, full inclusion of Mainland Chinese equities could see significant flows into the securities KBA owns today.
  • Co-managed by Bosera Asset Management; headquartered in Shenzhen, over $151 billion in AUM, one of the largest Chinese asset managers by assets.2

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
